Looks good. The part that hangs onto the frame is plastic, so I suspect it will break if not handled very carefully. Another one in the store was broken off, so it can happen. Kind of a cheap way to manufacture that piece, it should be more stable. There were some areas not finished the best, but nothing a black permanent marker can't fix (seriously). I wanted a different type of design, looks good on my cabinet. The face of the clock was just a bit off center, but not enough to return the clock. Good for the price, better if I had waited for a sale.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Finally got a set of these on-line, they have been out of stock forever, and scarce in the stores. I see they are out of stock again on line. Well, my small container has a hairline crack in it, but I'm not returning them due to the shipping costs, they are heavy. The FedEx box was damaged upon delivery, enough to where I took pictures. I guess the FRAGILE sticker on the box doesn't phase FedEx any. I don't believe the crack was due to how the items were wrapped, Kirkland's always does a great job protecting the products. I think it cracked when it was made, but I can't be sure. Poor quality control is my guess. Now it's my problem. The larger two canisters were fine, minus again, poor quality control. The thing that is bothersome, is the plastic over the lids to create the freshness seal. Seriously, I've never seen such chinzy manufacturing. The plastic doesn't form to the lid at the bottom, it is left sticking out, and it makes the lids pop off unless you get the lids on just right, tight and twist them just a bit. Crazy! They are cute canisters! I didn't find the smell in the plastic that I read was a problem in some of the other reviews, so maybe that issue has been corrected. When you wash the lids, the water does get under the plastic, so rather than risk a mold problem, I removed the plastic to dry the lids completely before first use, and they do go right back on because there is a groove that they snap onto. At first I wasn't sure if I could remove them. And removing them isn't what causes the lids to pop off the bottom section, because I haven't washed my other two canisters yet, and they pop off just the same. It's not something to return the set for, just poor and cheap design. Never seen such a thing. They are stylish for sure, and look awesome on my counter, and they are big! So be sure to measure first.
Yes, I recommend this product.

So much for thinking these were great. I'm taking them back to the store. Way too small, and they don't look as nice as they do in the picture. To make a statement, they need to be twice the size. Nice idea, poor execution of product making. A prime example of "you get what you pay for." There was one in the store on the shelf for sale with the wire handle broken, so that tells me they aren't of good quality either. Kind of plain looking and cheap. When I visited a store recently, it was VERY noticeable that customers made comments like, oh that's damaged, and oh, that's broken, etc, on some of the different products. Come on, Kirklands!
No, I do not recommend this product.

I bought two of these in the store, not on line. There were a few to choose from: look for flaws in the shade, scratches in the metal, tags stuck hard to the cords, before you take them home. Once home, I put the lamps beside the master room bed. Gorgeous! The 3-way bulb is a good option, too. They look beautiful, heavy, so I don't worry about the "bull in the china shop beside me" knocking one over in the dark. Easy to care for, just wipe them off. Love the look! I didn't care about the exact height, another review said it wasn't as stated. They are tall, and big, and look great next to our extra tall headboard. You will be happy with these, but remember to check for flaws.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are available both on line and in the store, under different product codes, just a FYI. The Starfish pic is the better of the 2, if you are deciding on one or the other, just my personal taste. And I've seen a few of the Starfish pictures and some have just blue and green rocks, and some have a lot of brown/tan in the rocks. The Sand Dollar pic seems to be the same, no variance in colors. Both pics (prints# are shot "out of focus" in the background, so somewhat of a blurred look. I got used to that. If you see the frame in the store, it looks much better than the pic on line, it doesn't doesn't do it justice. On line it looks more wood like or old and I almost didn't buy it thinking it was different than the ones I saw in the store, but it is actually a soft black with nice muted silver-ish trim surrounding the pic. Looks like they use this frame for other pics as well. You have to watch when buying the pics, because several in the store had distinct things wrong with them #either not high quality, or not handled properly#. The one I ordered on line came packed wonderfully, it took me forever to even get to the picture frame in the box because it was wrapped so professionally. They could have used less tape, I wouldn't have used tape with a picture frame, and some of it was stuck to the back of the pic, but no big deal. Anyway, check the picture over carefully for flaws, because the one I received had a chip under the covered corners, and it is going back. Sigh. I have another one already, so it's a matter of just getting it back to the store, or paying shipping AGAIN. Stores are few and far between, so it's difficult to say the least. Not sure why everything in the stores is not offered on line to help with those of us who have to drive well over an hour each way. And when you get to a store, not everything they say on line is actually in the stores, even though it indicated that the product is there. A pain.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Is there a rubber ring under the lids for freshness?

Yes, but it's a weird design. Not good quality, the plastic at the bottom does not adhere to the lid (sticks out). Never seen canister lids made in this way. You can remove the plastic to wash and dry them, as the water gets under the plastic seal. You can put the plastic back on after they are dry, there is a groove they pop in to.

Has the issue with the smell of plastic been resolved? I bought this set last year & had to return them because of the smell ruining the stored food.

I just got my set and there was no smell. I just submitted a review. I didn't like how they did the plastic on the lids, they don't look finished, the plastic kind of sticks out. It's hard to keep the lids on, they pop off if they aren't put on just right. Poor design, looks cheap. Were yours that way also?
